Innovative Approaches to Promoting Musculoskeletal Health in the Workplace
Completely free webinar from MedFit Classroom
Presented by Mark Mulray and Kelly Sanders
This webinar will address some solutions that employers have implemented to tackle the rising costs of musculoskeletal disease in the workplace. The need for interventions has never been so great. According to a report issued by the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI), an estimated 126.6 million Americans (one in two adults) are affected by a musculoskeletal condition which is comparable to the total percentage of Americans living with a chronic lung or heart condition. The cost is an estimated $213 billion in annual treatment, care, and lost wages.
We’ll discuss evidence-based approaches to promote health and longevity of your workforce through safety, worker’s comp, and corporate wellness programs regardless of your company size, industry, or the current state of health. Some of the approaches that will be discussed include onsite stretching clinics, workstation risk assessments, and Tele-PT services to more quickly triage and identify workplace injuries as well as determine which require immediate follow-up. These evidence-based approaches have been shown to improve the overall wellbeing of the employers’ workforce.
